People gathered for an anti-lovckdown protest in Hamilton's Claudelands Park during the Super Saturday Vaccination Drive.

Two men are facing charges after a mass gathering in Hamilton during level 3 restrictions..

There are also two other people facing similar charges in the North Island, including Brian Tamaki, Stuff understands.

The Hamilton charges come from a protest held at Claudelands Park on Saturday, while the city was under Covid-19 Alert Level 3.

A 46-year-old man has been charged with failing to comply with an order under the Covid-19 Public Health Response Act and Alert Level 3 Order and a 56-year-old man has been charged with organising a mass gathering and failing to comply.

Both men are due to appear in the Hamilton District Court on November 17.

Police also said they’d charged a 63-year-old man with failing to comply with an order under the Covid-19 Public Health Response Act and Alert Level 3 Order and is also appearing before the court for breach bail conditions.

He has been taken into custody and is due to appear in the Auckland District Court via audio-visual link.

Stuff understands this person is Destiny Church leader, Tamaki.

Tamaki appeared in court last week charged with leading a similar gathering, but on Tuesday claimed he would not be charged with breaching his bail conditions for attending Saturday’s event.

And in Northland, a 47-year-old man has been summoned to appear in the Whangārei District Court on 25 October in relation to organising a mass gathering at Mander Park.

The region was under Alert level 3 at the time this gathering took place.
